Microsoft Mini-Redirector Bug with respect to handling DAV:href

Hi there,

reporting here so it get's archived:

Version: Microsoft-WebDAV-MiniRedir/6.1.7601

Problem: client is doing a PROPFIND request without payload, thus 
defaulting to DAV:allprop.

Server returns a custom property than *contains* a DAV:href child 
element, like that:

       <D:getcontenttype>text/plain; charset=UTF-8</D:getcontenttype>
       <C:linked-from xmlns:C="http://example.com/ns">
       <D:getlastmodified>Fri, 01 Jun 2012 12:52:59 GMT</D:getlastmodified>
     <D:status>HTTP/1.1 200 OK</D:status>

So the response element contains a top-level DAV:href for the URI for of 
the resource:


...but also a nested...

       <C:linked-from xmlns:C="http://example.com/ns">

inside D:propstat/D:prop.

The client apparently gets confused and uses the second DAV:href 
element; causing a wrong name to be displayed (and likely the wrong 
resource to be used when opened).

Best regards, Julian
